The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the FBI filed an affidavit on Friday detailing some of its alleged crimes.

Bateman is a member of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FDLS), a radical Mormon polygamist group.

The FBI affidavit charges him with various crimes, including incest, group sex with adults and underage children, and intent to marry his daughter.

Bateman is said to have assembled over 50 followers and 20 wives, some of whom were minors and under the age of 15.

He also took the wives of his followers as his own.

Members of Bateman’s family spoke to investigators and said he plans to marry his own daughter in 2019.

His wife and daughter left soon after.

The affidavit details several instances of Bateman’s crimes, including a conversation between him and a couple who were among his supporters.

According to the transcript, Bateman said God told him to give “the most precious thing he has, the virtue of his girls” to three of his adult male followers.

It adds: “God will repair their bodies and put the membrane back into their bodies.

“I’ve never had more confidence in doing His will. It’s all for love.”

According to the affidavit, Bateman observed the three adult men having sex with his daughters, one of whom was 12 years old.

Bateman reportedly began referring to himself as a prophet in 2019.

In 2020, Bateman drove to Colorado City in a “van full of women and girls.”

Then he introduced them all as his wives.

He was arrested in August last year after police stopped him for towing a “luggage tag” carrying unsecured young girls.

The following month, the FBI searched both of his Colorado City homes for evidence of underage marriages or underage sexual relations.

Nine girls were removed from his homes and then brought back.

The girls were recovered the next day and taken to unknown locations.
